Insight: Burning Man Ticket Upset / Pat O'Conner / In Memoriam Michael Goodwin / Tommy Emmanuel / Sound Advice: Deconstructing the Beatles

Published February 9, 2012

Burning Man Ticket Upset - The popularity of the event may be its own undoing. Burning Man organizers' decision to fairly dole out access to the popular event by creating a ticket lottery has created a new black market for ticket sales and enraged longtime "Burners" who are being left out in the cold.

Pat O'Connor - Author Pat O'Connor, who wrote "Scapegoat: The Chino Hills Murder and the Framing of Kevin Cooper," will be at the Sacramento Valley Branch of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom Feb 9. He wrote the book after he came to believe that Kevin Cooper was wrongfully convicted for the murders.

In Memoriam: Michael Goodwin - Conductor and music director of the Auburn Symphony, Michael Goodwin, died in a car accident Tuesday afternoon. Many credit Goodwin as the driving force behind the symphony's success.

Tommy Emmanuel - Australian guitarist and two-time Grammy nominee Tommy Emmanuel is performing at the Crest Theatre Sunday night. Tommy's unique style - he calls it simply "finger style" - is akin to playing guitar the way a pianist plays piano, using all ten fingers.

Sound Advice: Deconstructing the Beatles - The magic behind some of The Beatle's greatest recordings is shattered and dissected by composer Scott Freiman in his show "Deconstructing the Beatles." Freiman uses rare audio, unreleased video, numerous first-hand sources, and anecdotes to detail how The Beatles composed songs that continue to be loved by millions years after being recorded.
